David Alaverdian to Fight on April 2

Flyweight David Alaverdian is scheduled to fight in his first six-rounder on April 2 at the Ford Community Center in Dearborn, Michigan, USA. Alaverdian had been scheduled to face Josue "PeƱas" Burgueno on March 24 in Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico. The Tepic card is still slated to go on, but Alaverdian is no longer on the bill.

Alaverdian is 5-0 with 4 KOs. The 28 year old U.S.-based Israeli started his pro boxing career in 2019. If it happens, the April 2 fight will be his first prizefight in the U.S. His previous five fights were in Mexico. His last fight was a second round stoppage victory last October.

Dmitiry Salita's Salita Promotions is the promoter of record for the Michigan event. Salita, a former boxer, was a 35-2 (18 KOs) world title challenger during his pro career which lasted from 2001-2013. His crowded stable of fighters includes two-time gold medalist and world middleweight champion Claressa Shields and heavyweight contenders Otto Wallin and Jarrell Miller.

Alaverdian's opponent has yet to be named.
